AJ Odudu Partner: Is She Married Or Still Dating?
AJ Odudu mentioned a former partner when talking about lockdown, wellbeing, and cooking a perfect hotpot with Lancashire Post in April 2020.
In November, AJ had also discussed being single and why the second lockdown has scuppered her chances of meeting “The One” with MailOnline.
Then a year before, around Oct. 2019, AJ Odudu was on Celebrity First Dates Hotel partnered with Duke, a then 31-year-old mortgage broker from Essex. Duke was back then considered a perfect match for AJ. And she seemed equally wowed by his appearance. (Fans were as smitten as AJ.)
Following their first date, the couple was believed to have stayed on to enjoy their summer of romancing together. But then no one knew what transpired beyond. And they definitely don’t seem to be dating now that AJ is taking herself on a new TV journey.
That been said, we believe, the details must have sufficed your “Is She Married Or Still Dating?” query.
Having made peace with “2020 is not the year for my love life” — AJ Odudu was hopeful to finding a partner the next year.
